Two roads diverged for Lindsey Harris.

With Jedi-like reflexes and a fierce competitive fire, she always had the makeup of a star goalkeeper. But before her redshirt senior season with the North Carolina women's soccer team, an intervention was in order.

Coach Anson Dorrance called her into his office, with her parents on the line. She had a decision to make.

She could take the usual path and rely on her natural talent, as she always had. Or she could push forward, like never before, to become the player she had never been.

During the meeting, Lindsey stayed silent. But then, something clicked.

And that has made all the difference.
